Ben Jones :

Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How many days per week does he work?

Customer:

5 days

Ben Jones :

someone working full time (5 days a week) is entitled to 28 days holiday per year. If they have not been there for a full year then they would have accrued their leave allowance on a pro rata basis depending on how long they have been there. Before I can give you his entitlement, can you confirm his employment terminated today?

Customer:

Yes he just turned in gave no notice and as I said asked for his P45, the previous week he took a day and a half unofficial leave

Ben Jones :

ok he would be entitled to 9.8 days' holiday for the time he worked there

Customer:

Thank you for that Good night

Ben Jones :

you are welcome, all the best
